The third edition of the series microworld – presented in September 2015 – broke out of the original frame of the project. Rather than presenting one piece to fit the 37x31x4cm frame of the series, Norman Andrew Wilson and Anna Okrasko exhibited three different works on the topic of love, each one its own micro-reality.
In studio 7, Global Mosquito City Proposal, a sculpture by Andrew Norman Wilson, completely replaces the microworld frame, creating an independent micro-reality and definitive solution for global health and development problems: a mass human extinction. Mosquito cities worldwide will spread malaria and cause the human species to disappear. In this potential apocalyptic scenario, humans are aware that this is the only solution that will allow the rest of the world to survive. There is a mystic or religious approach in the way the humans of Wilson, despite instinctual urges, decide to sacrifice themselves, out of love for the planet and other more resilient forms of life.
At the age of ten, Norman became obsessed with Sheryl Crow and her album Tuesday Night Music Club for nearly a year. This period ended when he started skating and listening to punk music. The work-in-progress All I Wanna Do box emerges from memories of that time.
On the other hand, in studio 8 Anna Okrasko gives a voice to a specific community and shows a very intimate perspective of what love is. One Woman Party was realized during the Dyke* March in Berlin in 2014. A poetic voice-over narration, sung by a group of women, conducts the images. The performers, constantly shifting between one and several voices, create a portrait of a community based on experiences of loss and abandonment. Their voices play in contrast to the reversed video (making the women depicted in the footage walk backwards) and bring in the forward movement, constructing a present time which is looped ad infinitum.
